Rand has repeated demonstrated his ability to...

"rise above principle". Like Ronald Reagan, you can expect nothing from a Rand Paul presidency. Reagan was the first governor in the nation to sign a "therapeutic abortion law". While governor, Reagan extended the "waiting period" for handgun purchases. "Governor" Reagan broke "Candidate" Reagan's promise not to raise taxes, even though class registration fees for California's community colleges were $5. President Reagan's first Supreme Court appointee, Sandra Day O'Connor was arguably "pro-choice". President Reagan increased the power of the IRS and helped bailout Chrysler and Mexico. President Reagan refused to "shut down the government" after Democrats broke their word to cut spending in exchange for tax increases. After his retirement, though, already diagnosed with Alzheimer's President Reagan supported the Brady Handgun Bill and the Bush "Assault Rifle" Ban. Reagan armed the Taliban, embraced Saddam Hussein and looked the other way while George H.W. Bush smuggled cocaine into the US via Mena airport.

Just as the Scottish rebellion spawned magnificent leaders, such as William Wallace (Braveheart), the Liberty movement ("Ron Paul Revolution") will spawn magnificent leaders IF IT CLINGS TO ITS PRINCIPLES. Rand is the "poster child" for an establishment sellout' and, if too many of embrace him we will, indeed, kill this movement.
